A comprehensive analysis of Albania. Based upon personal experience and an enterprise-level data set, the book offers an alternative view of the 1997 crisis in Albania in which good economic performance suffered a reversal accompanied by social conflicts.
Part 1 Assessment - the reasons for the crisis: the apparent rapid success of the Balkan tiger; the profound crisis in industry; difficulties in emerging services; the missing pillar - inadequacy of the banking system; the unemployment shock; impoverishment wages and incomes; the avoidance of social dialogue and participation; the failure of the mass privatization programme; limitations and drawbacks of foreign capital; the collapse of the Albanian pyramid. Part 2 Prospects - Albania after the storm: the extent of the destruction; a halt to economic activity; macroeconomic indicators moving backwards; the social abyss; reviving production forces; reviving life forces.
